Concept poster for Pearry Teo’s ‘Bedlam Stories’

by Phil Wheat

Director/producer/writer Pearry Teo (who just happens to be one of my favourite directors working today) has been gearing up for his next project, the much more personal fairytale horror Bedlam Stories – which has been in gestation for almost a year under the guidance of Pearry under his TeoWard Productions banner.

Inspired by the fairytales we all know but with a much darker twist, Bedlam Stories is:

“Set in the 1920s, [as] intrepid reporter Nelly Bly fakes insanity to gain admission into the infamous Bedlam Asylum. While researching her expose, Nellie meets a young patient, Dorothy, who has delusions of a fantasy land she calls “Oz.” Digging deeper into the dark history of the asylum, Nellie uncovers evidence of human experimentation on another inmate, a young girl named Alice, who’s “Wonderland” mirrored Dorothy’s imaginary world. Nellie is determined not to let Dorothy share Alice’s fate as a human guinea pig. But the horrific experiments open a portal to these other worlds. When the dark and twisted inhabitants of Oz and Wonderland clash for control, Nellie realizes that they aren’t delusions at all – they are terrifyingly real.”

We’ve already brought you a number of articles on Bedlam Stories, including some early concept art, but now – thanks to the official Facebook page – here’s a look at some concept poster art for the film. Here’s hoping Teo shares the trailer he’s been working on recently, I can’t wait to see it!
